This vase is meant to be seen in a Museum by tens of thousands of people! Definitely done by the hands of Paul Nicolas in his D’Argental Studio, circa 1920 as a class Art Nouveau – Art Deco transition landscape piece. Two oval framed beautifully acid etched cameo scenes of mountains. Lakes and trees make this vase timeless rare and very important as possibly no other ones exist! The principal blue color permeates through the clouds, the snow and the icy lake waters. Browns and purples make up the mountains and trees. The geometric dragonfly carved and acid etched sides show the transition period. Paul Nicolas was definitely showing with former boss; Emile Galle, with this piece that he was attempting to surpass the Daum Galle Nancy art nouveau standard and culminate by trying to define a new style in this crystal Art Deco piece. This vase will make a room decor and is for serious art glass collectors only!
